Powell Named Head Lacrosse Coach at Penn State Abington

As an Owl, Powell enjoyed her best season as a senior. In that campaign she broke the Temple single-season school record with 37 assists, on her way to leading the team in all three offensive categories, and being named a Division I All-American. That season she was named first team All-Atlantic 10, first team IWLCA All-Mid Atlantic and an Atlantic-10 All-Tournament pick. She was selected to play in the prestigious North/South Senior All-Star game as well.

In 2004, Powell founded the Spitfire Lacrosse Club, based in her native northern Westchester County, N.Y. Spitfire was developed as a specialized program for elite middle and high school girls lacrosse players to supplement their high school careers with year-round coaching and competition. The program was committed to providing character building opportunities within the sport of women's lacrosse by instilling teamwork, commitment, fundamentals and sportsmanship in its athletes.

Powell inherits an Abington team that qualified for the North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) postseason play for the first time in program history and that featured five All-NEAC selections in 2012. Statistically the Lady Lions had one of their greatest seasons to date. As a team, Abington totaled 179 points on 136 goals and 43 assists, breaking the 2010 marks for points, goals, and assists.
